Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight (about 4 to 8 hours of sun per day).

Then, dig a hole twice the diameter of the root ball and just as deep. Moisten the hole with water, place the plant’s roots into the hole, back full and tamp the soil firmly down around the roots to remove any air pockets.

2. Watering: Keep the plant moist for the first year of growth to help the plant establish roots. Generally, you should water the plant at least once per week, especially during periods of drought for optimum growth. After the first year, you should only need to water in times of extended drought.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize the Soft Touch Holly in the early spring or fall using a general purpose fertilizer. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer’s label for ratio requirements.

4. Pruning: Prune your shrub in fall or winter, and remove any broken or dead branches. The Soft Touch spreads through root suckers, so to control growth, the suckers should be pruned.

Beautiful Shrub. Great Value

A beautiful and very healthy plant. One of the best, if not the best plant I have ever purchased "on-line".

Tight, soft Foliage of the Ilex crenata

This variety of holly is a relief from the open, sprawling growth of the ilex vomitoria native to our area. They survived a strong and very unusual snow storm early this year! I hope you will continue to have this great shrub available.

So far so good

I have never had a bad plant from FGT, unlike the Tree Center, where I have averaged a 50% loss on everything I have bought there. Fast Growing Trees/ BrighterBlooms have always held up. These holly shrubs have been planted a couple weeks and seem to be doing well thusfar.
